Interacting w/another App on Win32

Discussion in 'Perl Misc' started by Anthony M. Saffer, Apr 11, 2004.

  1. Hello Everyone,

    I'm trying to find some information about how to do something but I
    don't even know what to search for. Here's the deal: I am writing a
    visual interface to Win32 command line tool. At some point, I will
    need to pass information to and read information from the other
    application. Is there a way to do this in Perl without the need to
    spawn a "DOS window"?

    Thanks,
    Anthony

    perldoc -f system
    perldoc -f exec

    Or look in perlop for qx/STRING/ or `STRING` (backticks, not single-quotes).
